What does having a property in an historic district mean for me as a property owner?
If you plan to make exterior changes to your property, you will need to apply for a Certificate of Approval from the preservation commission. And, the proposed changes will need to comply with certain guidelines. Your rehabilitation project could be eligible for certain tax credits at a state level. Because these properties are protected, their value usually exceeds that of properties that are not subject to review.
